Instrumental score written by Hans Zimmer.
Editor: Thomas Milano.
The soundtrack to True Romance starts out with some light marimba music (the basis of all the score pieces intermingled between tracks), then moves on to go over a number of light pop/soft rock bits. Charlie Sexton's Elvis-inspired "Graceland" is followed by a light number from John Waite, and then contemporary classic soul men Charles & Eddie's "Wounded Bird." Something of a club track from Nymphomania follows, and then more of the same lightweight material as before. Finally, near the end, Soundgarden's "Outshined" appears, bringing a much-needed (by then) dose of heavier material. The album finishes with Chris Isaak's "Two Hearts," which brings a return to the softer material the album has been pushing (as well as another slight Elvis tinge). Overall, not a bad album, though it becomes rather predictable up until the Soundgarden moment. Pick it up for a few relative rarities put into the same album. Otherwise, simply get an Elvis album, a Soundgarden album, and some sort of soft rock compilation. ~ Adam Greenberg
